1 pound thick smoked bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces

1 large onion, sliced

4 cloves garlic, chopped

1/4 cup cider vinegar

3/4 cup coffee

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup bourbon

2 chipotle chilis in adobo, chopped

1/2 teaspoon cumin

pepper to taste


1.Cook the bacon in a large sauce pan an over medium heat until the fat has rendered and the bacon starts to get crispy and set aside, reserving 1 tablespoon of the grease in the pan.

2.Add the onions and saute until tender, about 5-7 minutes.

3.Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about a minute.

4.Add the vinegar and deglaze the pan.

5.Add the coffee, brown sugar, maple syrup, bourbon, bacon, chipotle chilies, cumin and pepper, reduce the heat and simmer until reduced to a syrupy consistency, about 1-2 hours.

6.Process the jam in a food processor to smooth it out a bit but not too much as you want to have the texture of the bacon.

7.If you do not finish it all in one sitting, store it in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 4 weeks.
